Accomodate long lines in ul(1)

>From this mailing list post:
http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-hackers/2016-June/049596.html

ul(1) holds a static buffer of 512 characters and truncates any line longer
than that.

The attached patch allows expanding the buffer to accommodate lines longer than
512 characters. This is only done on the first occurrence of such a line, so
for most files no dynamic allocation is needed.

A version of the same patch with space changes ignored is also attached.
